“Classic English Countryside”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Visiting this place just summed up the English countryside in my mind. Was beautiful, quaint, and very well maintained. I love it that people still live there in those tiny houses, and that they are happy to preserve the history of the place. We also got to sample "Brooke's Ice Cream" from the trout farm shop. As my name is Brooke I was very excited by this; and it was also delicious.

“A real representation of an English Village from the sixteen hundreds beautifully preserved and still inhabited.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Arlington Row is a beautifully preserved row of cottages still lnhabited.I am not sure of the exact age but certainly built at least in the sixteen hundreds. A quintisentially English village well worth a visit . We met a resident who told us that only people born in the community had the right to own or occupy these gorgeous cottages.

“A beautiful and peaceful village”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is certainly a beautiful and peaceful village. Carpark available and you can spend a leisure one hr stop here -- just walk around and enjoy the peace and beauty of nature and the ancient village. You can visit the trout farm or the well stock gift shop.

“One of the prettiest places you will ever visit”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

It is exactly what the title says it is. My one tip would be to get there early on the day you plan to visit to avoid any tourist laden coaches, as these get in the way of any photos you will no doubt be taking but also because there is nothing more annoying ( for me anyway) than hundreds of tourists getting in the way,taking pictures of anything that moves (or doesn't) or walking about in sandles and long white socks or saying in an extremely loud voice "Oh my god,it's soooo quaint"( Americans take note).
You should park on the road and as close to the wooden bridge that leads to Arlington Row as you can. Cross the bridge to view the cottages and after that walk along the footpath that follows the dried up stream.It's marked with a public footpath sign so you can't miss it and has a tiny footbridge that crosses the pre mentioned stream. This will bring you out opposite the Mill and the Trout Farm and coffee shop. Visit the Farm and shop and after that take a leisurely stroll along the road and over the main stone bridge which will enable you to watch the trout in the river and take any pictures of the Swan Hotel, which has to be one of the prettiest Hotels you will see. You can then walk back to your car whilst again watching the trout in the river and, if you're lucky, someone fly fishing too. If you're even luckier you will set off exactly as three or four coaches turn up and ruin the picture taking opportunities for eveyone and the peace.
